  • Participants will be sign-up in the mentioned portal/application to get login details.
  • Once, the participants get the login details, they can login to the portal to perform the mentioned tasks.
  • First will be a combo of network/web/logic/bin minimum 2 should be completed to pass to the next CTF (Explanation: Participants should perform the web/network hacks in the mentioned portal to capture the flag).
  • Second CTF will be of different level of web challenges and it is time bound - all challenges has to be cleared to get to next level (Explanation: Participants should perform the web hacks in the mentioned portal to capture the flag). (Refer the attachment: CTF1 for more information)
  • The criteria 1 and 2 has to be full filled to get into the next hall for the live challenges.
  • On clearance of the first phase challenges researchers will get a certificate and an appreciation Swag From BugDiscover.
Second Phase: duration (4 hours)
  • Will be live BugHunting on BugDiscover Platform.
  • Participants will be sign-up in the mentioned portal to get login details.
  • Once, the participants get the login details, they can login to the portal to perform the mentioned tasks.
  • Each vulnerability reported by researcher will have a CVSS value that will be added to their score.

(Explanation: ZERO DISCOVER

Bug Discover Zero Discover Program has been designed for security researchers to make responsible vulnerability disclosure in a secured way. Zero Discover program of Bug Discover helps researchers to perform their responsibility to secure an organization without compromising their identity. Sometimes researchers come across threats or vulnerabilities of application that are not listed on bug discover and these are kept unaddressed to the concerned organizations due to the legal policies of the organization. And at such occasions, Bug Discover a trustworthy Platform swoops in, helping the researcher in doing a responsible vulnerability disclosure. Bug Discover takes up such pro bono work, thus helping researchers to do their disclosure, and we escalate their reports confidentially to organizations. Zero Discover program awards Certificate of Responsible Disclosure to the researchers for valid submissions.)
